ANOTHER BABY QUILT

I thought I would post a quick entry, and while
I am at it, show another baby quilt I made this year. It is a Mary Hickey design. She does darling things, I think. I had all those 9-patches left over from a previous project from TEN years ago. I was quite delighted to find a use for them!
I have decided that I cannot commit to a schedule of one hour of sewing a day. I just have to do it when I do it. I spent all day Friday working on Judy's project, and got quite a lot done. Well, all the Shoo Fly's are done, and the scrappy borders are on four blocks. They look darling. I will try to get more done and then post a picture. Most of you are miles ahead of me, and have great looking quilts. I have always been a bit of a turtle I guess. But a happy turtle!
In the meantime, I spent two days working on directions for my Sister to Sister quilt, posted earlier. So I feel good about that! Still miles to go --ugh! But it is not like someone is forcing me to do it, right? I choose to put myself through this. Patti asked why do we quilt? Because we must. And aren't we lucky that we have something that we love to do. And it doesn't get us into that much trouble, really. I won't elaborate, it would be the never ending story. Lots of other bloggers have made very good points on the subject already. Plus, Patti has said it sooooo well! So I just say, "I'm like a moth to the flame". Love it, love it, love it! Bye for now!

What a cute baby quilt! I like the humility block - makes the quilt uniquely yours. :)

I was going to ask if the fifth row had an intentional humility block kinda like the first comment. It does definitely make it your own.

That's a very cute quilt. I like the HST in the spacing blocks.

What soft colors for a baby quilt. The design doesn't look difficult at all. Good luck on your version of Judy's quilt.

Great use of blocks that you had for ten years! Very sweet!

Cheers!

Direction writing is a slow process isn't it? I find it hard to visualize how people might lay their work out and then how to tell them where to add the next piece....

What a sweet baby quilt. The colors are just perfect no matter the age of the blocks. Look forward to seeing the 1 Hour quilt progress.

sweet quilt--I like how it makes the medallion like changes of colors with the hst's--even if one did get turned. Amazing how the camera makes that easier to spot but the soft yellow is so subtle as well.

Very pretty! What a great use of your orphan blocks!

I really like Mary Hickey's patterns too. When I saw the book Sweet and Simple Baby Quilts, I wanted to make one of almost all of them. I have made this pattern and really like how easy it is to make this striking quilt.
